Not quite the residence of Batman, but Pha Yaa cave in Loei Province, Thailand, is certainly a sight to see, and definitely one the winged man of steel would be impressed with!
Loei Province, in the North East of Thailand, is well off the beaten track and home to a wealth of flora and fauna. Within Phu Pha Lom Forest Park, in Na Duang District, Pha Yaa Cave is the natural habitat of countless insectivorous bats. They live in an abundant area and are critical to the terrestrial ecosystem by bringing balance to nature.
Around 5pm, seen exiting from the mouth of the cave in the mountainside, a flock of literally a million bats starts their procession to forage together in the Park. The flock creates a dark beautiful winding line drawn across the dusky sky until the sun sets. Lasting about an hour until the last one has left the cave, their sound breaks the silence of the early evening, yet retains a peaceful atmosphere. Simply amazing!
On the way to and from the bat cave, the lush green countryside and beautiful mountain formations are equally awe-inspiring.
The bats return before dawn in a similar fashion. While they are asleep, there are plenty of other adventurous or relaxing activities in Loei awaiting exploration. Test your energy by climbing up to Phu Kra Dueng, Phu Rua or Phu Luang, cruise along the Mae Khong River, freshen up in picturesque waterfalls, or take a cultural tour to temples or Loei winery and vineyards - the list is endless...
The perfect place to stay is Loei Palace Hotel, located in the centre of Loei province, with 156 guestrooms of international standard and first class service. There is a good choice of dining options, meetings and business facilities. Lazy days can be spent by the pool, in the jacuzzi or enjoying a relaxing Thai massage, also available at the hotel.
